Zee TV’s weekend chat show JuzzBaatt… Sangeen Se Namkeen Tak has been giving us a generous peek into the lives of many popular TV stars. Host Rajeev Khandelwal has already caught up with Rohit and Ronit Roy, Adaa Khan, Divyanka Tripathi, Dheeraj Dhoopar, Rakhi Sawant, Barun Sobti, Karan Patel and many other celebs. In the upcoming episode, Indian television’s popular bahus and off-screen best friends, Juhi Parmar and Aashka Goradia will be seen gracing the hot seat.

During their conversation with Rajeev, the duo opened up about their respective journeys in the industry and the special bond that they share. Having been a part of several reality shows, both of them had interesting takes on them and revealed some shocking facts from their personal experiences.

Aashka Goradia said, “My sexuality was portrayed in a wrong way… I was intentionally made to come across as a lesbian on this reality show through editing tricks and it was extremely embarrassing for me and my parents. I was rubbing balm on a sick fellow inmate’s body after she had broken into an allergic reaction… I was putting my hand inside her blanket so as to not embarrass her about her rash on national television and they made it look like something else was going on. At that point, I was inside the house as per the show’s format and wasn’t even around to defend myself. When my mother visited me, she told me about how I was being depicted in the media and how everyone had started questioning my sexuality. But, the show’s host, my friends, and the entire media fraternity came out in my support and tried their best to salvage the situation. And, today on the stage of Juzzbaatt, I want to take this opportunity to let the whole world know that I am happily married to a very handsome man and extremely content with being straight.”

Juhi also shared, “The show that I did was for couples and I had participated with my ex-husband Sachin … the footage was edited in a completely shocking manner almost as if to change the entire meaning of what was actually happening. I was shown in a negative light to break my otherwise holier-than-thou bahu image, while Sachin was portrayed as a ‘bechara’. I was shocked when I came to know that they made me look like a vamp on-screen. It was not a pleasant experience at all.”

You can catch the show every Saturday and Sunday at 7:00 PM only on Zee TV.
